The Wait Is Nearly Over! Jean M. Auel’s The Land of Painted Caves Hits Stores March 29

A few weeks ago, we asked RIFers to send in video reviews of their favorite Jean M. Auel book, and we were so excited when the videos started coming in! Thank you to all those who took the time to share your thoughts with the Read It Forward community.

Everyone who submitted a video review received an advance copy of the highly anticipated sixth book in Jean M. Auel’s Earth’s Children® series. Our Read It Forward reviewers were among the very first to get a copy of The Land of Painted Caves, and we can’t wait to hear what they think!

We’re thrilled that Jean M. Auel and her publisher have made more advance copies available for the rest of the Read It Forward community.
